Buon viaggio, dear readers, for today we leave for five weeks in bella Italia and France. Oh!
There is nothing of interest to mention regarding the ttc situation. We had a follow up appointment with Dr New last week. I am not sure what the point of this appointment was, other than to deliver more thyroid test results, because there is little left to say at this point.
Dr New re-iterated that she thinks our best chance is to do IVF, not because it will overcome RPL, but because we need to look at the embryos as the great unknown. I accept the logic of this argument but I am still ambivalent. All I heard was blah blah, IVF, blah blah, embryo, blah blah, no time to waste, blah blah.
My response to all this was that as we are going overseas, we aren’t doing anything right now. Then it will be mid-November, and then it will be Christmas. At this stage we plan to do another tracking cycle when we return and then we are to have another appointment with Dr New in January if we decide to attempt IVF.
Surprisingly, my husband seems to be leaning towards IVF. Which is fine for him to say, given that his part is…well, I am sure that I don’t have to explain it to you. He wants to talk about it while on holidays. I prefer to ignore the whole thing in the hope it will go away.
Italy is not meant for such things. Italy is for the greater experiences of art, history, wine, love, and eating one’s body weight in gelato.
